RACES Announce Spring US Tour Dates || Premiere Video For "Year Of The Witch/Year Of The Child" On Vice/Noisey


RACES have been steadily building a word-of-mouth following across the Mountain West and their native Southern California since the release of their debut “Big Broom” EP last fall and their debut LPYear of the Witch this March.
The LA sextet, who have been described as "Laurel Canyon's answer to Broken Social Scene", are now excited to share with you their brand new video for "Year Of The Witch/Year Of The Child". Head over to Vice/Noisey, where the video premiered, to watch the hazy collage of Super-8 footage directed by A. Dola Baroni.
RACES are also happy to say they are coming East this May! In two weeks their tour kicks off in DC, then they will make their way North, being joined by Sean Bones, Right on Dynamite, Hundred Waters, North Highlands and Great Ceasar along the way.


Under The Radar : "Splits the difference between 1990s posturing and a romantic streak as long as Sunset Blvd - Creating a space where the male/female harmonies are big and the baselines are even bigger"
Magnet Magazine : "RACES (formally known as Black Jesus) aren't just fundamental indie rock. The band has put style into the classic genre, mixing catchy chords with other subtle nuances that captivates your ears’ attention."
No Fear In Pop : "Good old indie rock usually isn’t exactly our cup of tea (anymore, admittedly), but we can’t help but face the simple fact that there still is a good amount of finest, straightforwardly guitar-based music out there that does indeed evoke those same old feelings. Take as an example Los Angeles outfit RACES"
Buzzbands LA : "the sextet “melds charismatic indie-pop highlighted by the boy/girl vocals of Wade Ryff and Devon Lee, jammier psych-rock built around by guitarist’s Garth Herberg’s textures and the revivalesque energy meted out by bands such as Arcade Fire.” That’s a mouthful, but its right on.
KCRW :  "Lead vocalist, Wade Ryff, who is trained in theory and also arrangement via piano, is taking the microphone for the first time and really catching the ears of many"
